Define requirements to guide teams

What are requirements?

Requirements are specific objectives that need to be met to complete a project phase. They act as clear, actionable goals for your team.

Why define requirements?

  • Clarity: Provides team members with a clear understanding of expectations.

  • Focus: Helps teams concentrate on essential goals, boosting efficiency.

  • Progress Tracking: Allows for monitoring of achievements against set objectives.

Create requirements

Best Practice:

  • Be concise and clear in your descriptions.

  • Make these requirements specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART).

  • Clearly communicate these requirements to your team. Ensure everyone understands what is expected and why it's important.
